Gynecomastia Surgical Technique

Surgical Techniques of Gynecomastia Surgery (Male Breast Surgery)

The particular surgical technique used for gynecomastia surgery depends mostly on the extent of the gynecomastia. In very minor cases, in which the gynecomastia is limited to an isolated lump behind the areola, surgery can be done through a well hidden incision placed within the pigmented skin of the areola and involves simple removal of the breast tissue.

More extensive cases of gynecomastia will require procedures that involve more incisions and therefore more scarring. Breasts that have enlarged substantially may require surgery that has similarities to the breast reduction procedure performed in females. This is quite rare and Dr. Backstein, Toronto gynecomastia specialist, makes leaving as minimal scarring as possible a top priority in all cases of male breast surgery.

In cases of pseudogynecomastia (breast enlargement caused by being generally over weight), liposuction alone can be used to completely treat the problem with only very minor scarring being left.
